Bacillus Coagulans OLD NAME LACTOBACILLUS SPOROGENES, unlike most common pro-biotic bacterial strains, is an unusually hardy type of lactic acid bacteria, capable of surviving the human stomach environment without reduction in viability. We have employed it as our first choice for effective probiotic support when treating for candida overgrowth. Most other strains of lactic acid bacteria are extremely vulnerable to damage or destruction upon entering the stomach because of the potential for severe pH fluctuations, especially if taken when any food is present in the stomach.
Bacillus Coagulans has also been found to be instrumental in lowering blood lipids by binding cholesterol in the intestines and blocking its absorption. In addition, it is believed to inhibit HMC CoA reductase, an enzyme involved in cholesterol synthesis. Both of these factors contribute to normalization of LDL and total cholesterol levels.
Unlike most other pro-biotic bacterial strains, Bacillus Coagulans OLD NAME LACTOBACILLUS SPOROGENES does not require refrigeration, making it convenient for travel and use outside of the home. Contains approx. 2 billion CFU’s per vegetarian capsule
